Covid-19 update

Prospective tenants please note that whilst we are in lock-down due to the Covid 19 crisis, we will not be accepting any new applications to the waiting list at the shop on Saturday mornings. Please instead send your name, address, telephone number and email address to:

whitemoorsecretary@gmail.com

Once we have your application we will send you an email confirmation that you have been added to the waiting list.

COVID-19 ADVICE

Please don’t be afraid – the allotments are open and a great place to be! How blessed are we to have hedged-off spaces to escape to. I might even grow some food this year! However, we do need to be wise and exercise some caution. We have discussed various things amongst the committee and will send out a letter and email in due course with some updates outlining a few important things. However in the mean time please try and remember the following things:

1) Think about the communal lock. Either sanitise your hands before and after or wear gloves or have a cloth with you. The same goes for the compost toilet.

2) Please do not enter other peoples’ allotments unless they invite you in there and then

3) Please keep a good distance away from people

4) Do smile at each other and wave

The shop will remain open for as long as is viable but we will be managing the space carefully.

Please look out for each other and help, encourage and inspire each other in this time of isolation.

If you are struggling, please email me at the whitemoor secretary account or call the site phone and leave a message and I will get back to you.

Stay safe, think about others’ safety and enjoy the gardening…

NESTING BIRDS

Please remember that we are at that time of the year when the birds are nesting so please be extremely careful when cutting your hedges that you are not disturbing the nests. (I have blackbirds nesting in my hedges at the moment) Please especially avoid using petrol operated hedge trimmers until after the nesting season.
